So here is my confession: too many women feel they need to drink like men. It's something we see time and time again at the bar, always the flick of the eye towards the other drinks being pulled and then the order for something meaty in a pint glass. When did this happen?

Do you call your mother mammy? What does "sucking diesel" mean? Are you a flame haired warrior princess or prince? If you know the right answers to these questions you could be more Irish than you think! And now all you St Patrick's Day revellers can find out, just in time for the big day!
The thing about Milton Keynes is that it is not quite enough like Singapore. Literally no-one has thought this before. It is an entirely original sentence. You read it here first. It is, however, not my thought.
Whilst teenagers and drunk office colleagues are sharing pictures of their naked bits on their mobiles, even posting them to social media, there is another delight quickly climbing to the top of the "things that make you go Hmm" (or "Yumm") in the social media activities: Food-Porn
